Today we were lucky enough to observe 3 non-predatory breaches near the Nautilus. Sept 10, 2011 – Isla Guadalupe, Baja California, Mexico

Just wrapped up two days of great cage diving with the mighty white sharks of Guadalupe. Two days of 100 ft plus visibility, beautiful sunny weather, lots of white sharks, and the anchorage all to ourselves. A brief visit from a Mexican Navy patrol vessel was our only encounter with another vessel for the two days of diving.

The sharks were with us from breakfast time until the cages came out of the water for both days and we counted up to 6 different individual white sharks on a single dive in our submersible cages. We were visited by males and females, including a few juveniles of “only” around 3 m (10 ft).

Shredder, AKA Scar was one of our favorites who came to visit us. Today we were lucky enough to observe 3 non-predatory breaches near the Nautilus. Nobody is 100% sure of the reason for these breaches… to get rid of parasites, a show of dominance, or just for fun?? Regardless it’s always impressive to see a 15 ft white shark jumping clear of the water and landing with a huge splash.

Our upcoming expedition promises to be another great adventure including white shark diving at Guadalupe combined with kelp diving at both San Benitos and the California Channel Islands.

Stay tuned…
